What do you believe the talking fan was requesting? Answer: It appears that the talking fan was requesting lubricating oil for its whirling motor in order to minimize friction and help it run smoothly. Electricity was not available as we know today. The word "electricity" did not exist back then. All they had was "electrics". Anything that created a current but wasn't an electric light (such as a dynamo) was called an "electric". There was no such thing as an electrical device until long after Thomas Edison invented the light bulb.
Now, consider what type of motor this is. If you look at the picture, you can see that it's a small one. That means that it uses very little oil compared to a large motor used on a truck or an engine in a car. Also, since this is a fan, it does not need to be as efficient as an electric motor so it makes sense that it wouldn't require electricity to work.
Finally, remember that this talking fan is not working. This scene is from before Harry Houdini performed his legendary escape act. So, there are no handcuffs or other gimmicks used to trap the magician. He simply escapes from these ropes that bind him hand and foot!

The talking fan demanded that its whirling motor be oiled. This is one of many common household repairs that can improve your home's efficiency and lower your energy bills.
The talking fan appeared in the United States in 1995 when Whirlpool introduced it as part of its Duett range. Since then, it has become a popular feature on other make and models of refrigerator/freezers. It is also found in some American-made side by side refrigerators/freezers. Although the fan is still made by Whirlpool, it is no longer manufactured in America but instead in South Korea. However, an aftermarket company called American Technology Laboratories (ATL) still makes some improvements to the fan design every year.
The talking fan is controlled by two sensors: one to detect motion and one to detect temperature. If neither sensor detects anything after three minutes, the fan will automatically shut off to save energy. The idea behind the talking fan is to allow users to turn off the unit if it isn't being used or to provide instructions for others how to repair it if needed.
There are several things that can go wrong with the talking fan.
Q. What effect did the oiling have on the fan? When the fan's motor was lubricated, it began to run smoothly and quietly. It is my understanding that oil should be added periodically while the fan is running so that it will not wear out too quickly. Is this correct?
A. Yes, you do need to add oil periodically while the fan is running so that it will not wear out too quickly. This is important because as the gears in the fan assembly wear over time they will need to be replaced or the noise and vibration will increase. You can estimate how much oil needs to be added by using our maintenance schedule below. If your vehicle has less than 5,000 miles then you may want to consider doing a full engine replacement rather than repairing the problem with a new part. A new belt-driven fan could cost up to $150 more than replacing the entire engine.
1 Add a small amount of oil to the ends of the shafts that connect the fan to its housing. This will help to prevent friction and wear between these parts. 2 Replace the fan belt when recommended by your manufacturer.
